Staff Spotlight - Olly Cayless

Three years ago, former North Star staff member Brad Holland was working for an international staffing agency. We work with a handful of agencies that send us the great counselors from abroad. Brad forwarded us a profile and mentioned that Olly was perfect for North Star. He couldn't have been more right.

Returning for his third summer, Olly joins us from from Wales in the United Kingdom. he's studying Sport and Exercise Scienc and is thee Year 2 Lead Sport Representative for the School of Sport Cardiff. He recently started playing water polo competitively and is teaching Kayaking and canoeing in spare time. At camp, Olly is one of our village directors and also instructs sailing, windsurfing and climbing.
